About me

I work with buyers and sellers to find and sell great East Bay properties. As a home owner in Berkeley for over 30 years and an investor in rental property for over 15 years I understand the market, the housing stock and the values. I have years of experience updating and remodeling houses and can help sellers realize the maximum sales price for their house with desirable and cost effective updates. For buyers in this crazy market, I work closely with you to help you actually succeed in buying a house, we *can* do it! I am thrilled to be working at Berkeley Hills Realty, a privately owned, well regarded and highly ethical real estate company that reflects my own values of service, caring and cooperation.
